Homeowner sentenced to 70 years for shooting serial burglar


Last April Diren Dede broke into the garage of a home in Montana. He was was shot and killed by homeowner Marcus Kaarma. Diren Dede is relentlessly referred to as a “German Exchange Student,” by the media. In fact, Dede was a 17 year old Turk, who had been living in Germany as a resident alien.  Dede was buried in Turkey, not Germany.

Dede was shot and killed during his second time breaking into the same garage. He was also accused of breaking into other garages in the neighborhood. Dede has been treated as a saint by US and international media, despite evidence that he was a serial burglar in the community.

The German government, which treats it’s Muslim immigrants like royalty, demanded that the homeowner by prosecuted. Anti-self defense advocates rallied around the case all over America.

The prosecutor ceded that Dede had broken into Kaarma’s garage before. However, they claimed that Kaarma enticed the perp to break in a second time. They say that Kaarma restocked the garage with valuables and had left the door open so Dede would see them.

The District Judge, who is about to retire, claimed Kaarma “went hunting.”

Under Montana Law a homeowner has a right to use deadly force to to stop the commission of a felony inside his own house.

Montana law:

45-3-103. Use of force in defense of occupied structure.
(1) A person is justified in the use of force or threat to use force against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that the use of force is necessary to prevent or terminate the other person’s unlawful entry into or attack upon an occupied structure.
(2) A person justified in the use of force pursuant to subsection (1) is justified in the use of force likely to cause death or serious bodily harm only if:
(a) the entry is made or attempted and the person reasonably believes that the force is necessary to prevent an assault upon the person or another then in the occupied structure; or
(b) the person reasonably believes that the force is necessary to prevent the commission of a forcible felony in the occupied structure.

Kaarma was charged with Deliberate Homicide, which appears to be Montanan’s version of 1st Degree Murder. It carries a sentence of 10 to 100 years. Montana has a another charged called Mitigated Deliberate Homicide, which includes circumstances where the shooter has an excuse for being under “mental or emotional distress.” This carries a sentence of 2 to 40 years.

Do you believe that the prosecution of Kaarma was politically motivated?

The origin of the surname Kaarma is sketchy. It only appears in Western countries, mostly the US Northwest. It appears to be an Anglicized Chinese name. Some Americans named Kaarma may be descendants of Chinese immigrants from the 19th Century.
